Very good. Thanks DB. It’s hard to capturer what he meant to us fans but I think it’s a great tribute. For my family he’s 007 and Henry Jones sr, actually we like most of his films kind of a family thing we had growing up.

National television is giving us no less than three Sean Connery movies tonight.
Apparently the director of The Name of the Rose first declined Connery for the role of a monk... Until he forced himself into his office and asked if he could read ONE LINE of the script. And he got it.

BBC2 here in the UK showed a Connery tribute doc, but I only found it by accident when I tuned in for the programme it replaced. Not convinced that's really the best way to honour his memory.
Balls, Q?

Nicely done. I don't think I could have found the words to say it half as well Benny. Despite hoping Sir Sean would grace the world with one hundred years or more long ago I tried to find the kinds of words which would be fitting knowing Sir Sean's might someday pass on, if so this site would need to offer a decent tribute, respectful to his family and friends and something us fans need as well.

Thank you sir. I still don't feel I did the man justice, but what do you say about a man who embodied a character who touched the lives of so many people, as well as a wonderful actor in his own right.
